    Describe an event that changed your life forever, and you felt you could no longer go back

    to who you were once? If you found you are getting stuck, see if you can  describe an event that "could" change your life forever

    You made me think of the good, bad and the ugly. All have varied my life course and as I sit here today all for the better. Stage four Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma with pacreatic involvement and a terminal diagnosis. Changed things before and after survival. How could my children being born, growing and becoming my best friends not have truly changed things. Love and marriage?
    Growing plants, caring for animals? Christ? Love of all sorts at all different times?
    Perhaps for me that which changed my life forever was the butterfly flapping it's wings in China.
    (sorry that is kind of way out there, but it is what came to mind)

      I cannot say anything here, eric, it would seem trite. Thank you for sharing a serious part of your life with us.

    In late September or early October 1973 experience what I call my "new conception" that caused my gestating for my August 1976 "new birth" was the changing point of my life. The following is the short of that testimony.

    After having 2 children out of wedlock while with my first wife the girl who was to become my second wife had a boyfriend on the side to my disapproval. On the day of my "conception" I realize the many girls I'd had including two out of marriage children with one by another boy's wife was my "reaping what I had sown" aka "karma". In the last minute of the about 15 it took to be conceived I realized karma at work in my life and heard a bodiless voice say "go back to the church" where my "gestation" and "trivial" took place.

    Before leaving the church I'd been in the choir so that was the first thing I did at church but, at home, I  began to study the Bible as if it was a book I knew nothing about and was instructed by the voice to note all contradictions I found as I began at Genesis 1:1. It didn't teach me any understanding of "karma" that I could see so I told "god" I was going to consider everything I had learned to be in error and for "him" to teach me the truth.

    When I got to John 6:27: "Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed," I stopped and outlined a sermon entitled "My Paycheck" and used my employment with Southwestern Bell as an example to make my point. I said; "If 'Ma Bell' send me to the gas company to repair their phone I do not expect the gas company to pay me but return to "Ma Bell" for my pay, so, if I am working for god I don't expect the people I minister to to pay me but I look to god to pay me in due time." That was in 1974.

    In late 1975 I was preaching "Follow Jesus" using Matthew 8:19-23, 7:1, 19:29 and 28:19-20 as examples of what is expected on anyone following him. After proclaiming it I felt a hypocrite in telling others to do something I had not done so I told god "If you want me to give up my job, give me a date" but spirit responded "that is to be your decision". After realizing I didn't want to owe Ma Bell anything nor for her to owe me anything I chose to part our ways August 6, 1976, three years to the day from my beginning, and never looked back after making that my "new birthday". My trivial was I lived 3 weeks homeless in Amarillo, Texas before it.

      Elijah, you are new to me. I am curious about what you say and how you say it. I agree with you, you couldn't ask someone to do something you wouldn't be willing to do.

      Maybe if you read some of my hubs or google search "Elijah NatureBoy" and find my website, second usually, you might be able to grasp what I'm talking about.
